Sunshiny Day


Hello everyone,

I tried a new technique to create today’s card!!  Have you heard about “smooshing”?  If not you could check out Kristina Werner’s post here.

July’s Challenge theme is CAS (Clean and Simple), I think my card surely qualifies for the Simple, but not so sure of the Clean, since I was having too much fun smooshing and didn’t leave much of white space!!  😀

Let’s take a look.


My process:

  • Stamp sentiment from the Kelly’s Oh Baby set with clear embossing ink and heat emboss with white EP on white CS.
  • Press distress ink Barn Door and Wild Honey separately onto craft sheet.  Spray with water until ink beads.
  • Pick up ink using a piece of acetate and transfer ink onto CS starting with one colour then the other.  Smooshing the ink together to achieve desired shape.
  • After ink dries, trim and mount on card base.

Fun right?   I hope you would play the July challenge.   By entering you have a chance to win a $25 gift card to the store.  The Hero Arts Holiday Pre-release items are available at the store right now.    They are: Light to Royal Red Ombre, Lime to Forever Green Ombre, Wood stamp: Peace & Joy, Clear stamp: Color Layering Tree & Color Layering Christmas Tree.
